Event Overview

With the health and community services sector now the State's biggest employer and South Australia's average age the oldest across mainland Australia, health reform remains critical to SA's prosperity.

Join Minister for Health, Jack Snelling as we undertake a health check of the sector as we are just over half-way through the Government's 2007-2016 Healthcare Plan which was released in 2007. The Healthcare Plan outlines the most significant single investment in health care in SA's history, the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.

The Royal Adelaide Hospital combined with the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHRMI), and the future University of Adelaide medical school, the new dynamic health precinct for the city is well and truly already taking shape.

With this background, CEDA also welcomes key leaders from across the health sector to provide their insight and understanding of the opportunities and challenges we face to deliver health services.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
